Product Description

Based on research in the areas of rapid reading and precision teaching, this handbook serves as an invaluable resource to both supplement and enrich early braille instruction for parents and teachers of those who are blind or visually impaired. The activities and games presented in the book enhance the traditional teaching of braille reading skills from the preschool level through Grade 3. The book also offers suggestions for working with remedial readers, regardless of age.

This second edition of Guidelines and Games for Teaching Efficient Braille Reading commemorates the 40th anniversary of the book’s original release. The book was updated to reflect advances in technology that have made braille more accessible in a digital format, such as refreshable braille devices, digital notetakers, and translation software. The writers have also incorporated new research on teaching braille literacy, as well as current best practices for teachers of students with visual impairments.
